Nature and Scope Commissioning and the associated quality assurance occur throughout the process of delivering the network capital programme. From the early broad design review to detailed design checks at the later stages. Equipment is checked, tested, safely energised and records updated as part of the process. The role is one of teamwork with many other specialists and colleagues. Commissioning equipment requires communication and understanding with technical staff Contractors, Suppliers, and Customers as well as internally with designers and project managers. Technical problems that occur on site are normally handled locally where the job holder will find a way to achieve the end often without reference to higher authority. Using sound engineering judgement and applying precedents the job holder will make decisions about a way forward. Often there is no right answer. For this reason communication must be enthusiastic and unambiguous. Risk is often reduced by an ability to understand and rationalise conflicting points of view to reach an optimum solution. Work is normally on sites with varying degrees of accommodation. The majority of the work is site based including outdoor and indoor construction areas and site based office locations. Work often has to take place outside normal hours in order to lower the risk of customer interruptions whilst new plant is commissioned and tested. The planning process towards this can be very long term. Limited technical supervision is provided to these job holders normally they will have to request help. General remote managerial supervision is provided. The job holders contribute to the development of commissioning testing. Outline rules and policies exist to guide these staff. New developments are being incorporated into designs all the time resulting in the job holder's continual learning. Commissioning engineers are often required to provide expertise to operational staff when faults or failures affect customers' supplies. The workload tends to be peaked towards the summer and early winter months and as a result of network outage risk, customer requirements and the demands of the programme a high degree of flexibility of working times is required leading to work outside normal hours. The job holder will be a major influence on prioritisation and planning of work. Decisions on testing and energisation lay with the job holder. The job holder is normally the technical authority on site for the resolution of problems, faults, failures etc. Cooperation with experts from suppliers, internally and contractors ensures a balanced outcome to site initiated design alterations and acceptance
